In 1997, NB Hwy#16 was rerouted across a string of islands and marshes to complete the new fixed link connection between mainland Atlantic Canada and Prince Edward Island. These last few kilometers approaching the Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick actually make up the Cape Jourimain National Wildlife Area. Designated for protection in 1980 by the Canadian Wildlife Service, this 675 hectare site contains a complex legacy of natural and human history. Opened in 2001, Cape Jourimain Nature Centre was then created to protect and preserve the wild flora and fauna of this sensitive area of the Maritime coast, while providing an opportunity for sensitive human interaction...More
This is a designated 11 acre green waterfront area which was created on the northside of the Saint John River, in Fredericton, NB. This park, referred to as Carleton Park, runs parallel to riverfront drive and directly across from another park on the opposite side of the river.

Built in 1876, the Saint John City Market is the oldest continuing farmer's market in Canada.

The design was an intentional nod to the City’s economic and cultural heritage, as the City was an active ship building port city in the 19th Century...More
